Patrick Kane and the Blackhawks will begin the tough task of defending their 2013 Cup title on Oct. 1, when they raise their championship banner before taking on the Washington Capitals.

With every team targeting the defending Stanley Cup champions, the Blackhawks will try to become the first NHL team to repeat since 1998, when Detroit accomplished that feat (coached by Scotty Bowman, current Blackhawks Senior Advisor to Hockey Operations).

Chicago became the first squad to capture both the Presidents' Trophy for the league's best regular-season record and the Stanley Cup since Detroit turned the trick in 2008. And by becoming the first team to win a second title since the hard salary cap went into effect and setting a new record by starting the season with a 24-game point streak, the players know their opponents will use every contest as a measuring stick against them.

Throughout the week, 2013 draft pick John Hayden will be blogging for chicagoblackhawks.com about his experiences during his first Blackhawks Prospect Camp.

I think this final game was the most competitive of all three scrimmages, especially since we were competing for that big trophy. It’s unfortunate that we got the loss, but I think our team worked hard all three days. We were joking that we got the two wins before this one, so I think we’re still ahead.

Throughout the week, 2013 draft pick John Hayden will be blogging for chicagoblackhawks.com about his experiences during his first Blackhawks Prospect Camp.

It was nice to be on the winning side of today’s Prospect Camp scrimmage, but these past two scrimmages have just been exhibition games. Tomorrow is for everything: the last scrimmage of the week, it’s going to be played more like an actual game, and it's our last chance to show what we can do. So we have to bring it all tomorrow again just to make sure we get the win.
